We're still sitting around waiting for any tidbit on 'Injustice: Gods Among Us.' DC Comics characters fighting each other might not make sense but does it really matter? The game looks pretty good and who doesn't want to play as these characters and fight others?

There still isn't a release date beyond simply 2013 revealed. Check out this latest video SuperHeroHype came across from Gametrailers.com. Ed Boon talks about the game and we get to see more gameplay.

Since we haven't seen the full roster yet, who are you hoping will be announced next?

Yes, red hood would make quite the addition!

Deathstroke would be cool, and Doomsday could be a boss character maybe? The entire Justice League(new 52) should be a given.

I really hope they will not abuse with dlc and that we will not have a boring game with every thing unlocked when you buy the game.

It was much better soem decade ago when we had fighting with tons of characters, tons of stage, costums, ending to unlock by playing the arcade, story mod.

Yup. About time Aquaman got into the fighting genre, guy's literally a human fighting machine nowadays, esp. with that trident of his. Hawkman is a brawler that is great for a fighting game as well as Lobo, Deathstroke, Bane, Guy Gardner GL or Kilowog GL, Mongul, Azrael, Black Canary, and Animal Man!

Forgot to add Geo-Force, Power Girl, Ares, Prometheus, and Firestorm.

Deathstroke would be great, and if they're gonna do characters as irrelevent as Solomon Grundy, I would love to see Deadshot.

Donna or Barda would be fun to see in this. Although they would be incredibly unlikely to appear.

Did Wonder Woman say Athenadite (a combination of Athena and Aphrodite)? Or was that just me.....? I would quite like to see Supergirl or Powergirl, perhaps one being an alternate costume to the other. Like a faster version of Superman, but less 'powerful'. Martian Manhunter would be awesome as well. Oh and Cheetah.

I'm pretty sure she said "Athena, Guide me".

GL Hal Jordan would be awsome and make Sinestro (before new 52 version as a yellow lantern) as an enemy for Hal.and Zoom would be good too for an enemy of the Flash

Really pleased to hear there's going to be a big emphasis on the single player. They did an excellent job with MK9's story mode, challenge tower and unlockables.

As for the next roster announcement: Deathstroke! I can't imagine a DC fighting game without Slade.

Harley Quin seems like a waist of place for using a good character. Did anyone really ask for her? I doubt it.

I don't really want more Superman related characters in it like Supergirl because that would be kinda pointless since we've already GOT Superman, but I'd like to see Power Girl if only so she can make her first playable game debut, Superboy(New 52 version), and just for fun Bizarro

@JamDamage: I think you meant 'waste'. And yes, my wife was extremely pleased over her inclusion. Dunno if you know this or not - but part of demographic marketing is ensuring that something other than 12 year old white males will play this and enable more robust success on each gaming platform.

Needs: Hal Jordan, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Deathstroke, Zatanna, Captain Marvel (or Shazam I guess), Hawkman, Lex Luthor, Firestorm, and Cheetah.

Want: Midnighter, Dr. Fate, Red Tornado, a Mr. Majestic skin for Superman, Captain Atom, Mirror Master, among others.

Three ideas:

1.) Enough with the Batman characters, already! I know he's (arguably) the most popular DC hero, but stuffing the roster with him and his allies/enemies means no room for other characters, and no one will have a chance to learn about, say, Green Lantern, and become interested in his mythos again.

2.) More Magic characters on roster. Considering what's going on with science/tech heroes in recent movies (Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel, Green Lantern) and TV (Arrow, the possible Blue Beetle show), I think Injustice can take this opportunity to make DC's magic-based characters more prevalent in the current fandom (Jonah Hex doesn't count). Wonder Woman and Grundy aside, we could have Zatanna unleash different effects (like slowing, health theft, or summoning) with her spell casting, or (what I REALLY want) have Raven unleash the visage of her demonic father Trigon upon her unsuspecting foes! Hell, let's see how The Spectre, God's Right Hand of Vengeance, would work as a boss character!

3.) How about a joke character? Like, an obscure DC character who isn't canon to the game's story mode, and is unlocked under certain conditions? Plastic Man is the first that comes to mind, but what about Ambush Bug or Creeper? Perhaps a purposefully-weak character that could be Injustice's version of Dan Hibiki?

I'm glad no one's complaining about "Oh Superman would just pound Harley Quinn into jelly in a minute." Ignore the power level arguments and just take this game for what it's trying to be: a fun fighting game using our favorite DC characters.

Also: Swamp Thing please.

hawkman, green lantern (hal jordan), aquaman, Beast boy would be sick, green arrow, martian manhunter, firestorm,swamp thing and animal man. but i would also like to see some skins for all the characters, like we could see a alan scott green lantern skin, a classic jsa hawkman, not all new 52 costumes, bring back some oldies. but deffinetly beast boy, he would be such a complex character it would be awesome

They need to have Deathstroke in this game. I think he'd be a pretty unique character to play as and is also my personal DC fave. So they better have him. Or else I'll have to go all Terminator on WB Games :)
 
Bizzaro might be fun too. Darkseid would be WICKED FUN to play as. Green Lantern and/or Sinestro would be pretty fun too.
